Black History Month & Sierra Leone - Homelands Exhibition at Hull Street Life - advert

Updated: Sep 30, 2022

Streetlife Museum

Saturday 1 October – Monday 31 October 2022

This co-produced photography exhibition examines the shared homelands of British service personnel and Sierra Leonian people during the upheaval of the Second World War.

Wartime photography by Corporal Fred Birden has been selected and reinterpreted by local members of the Hull Afro Caribbean Association who were either born, lived or worked in West Africa. Their insights bring a fresh dimension to an important privately owned collection of photographs of Sierra Leone just prior to decolonisation from Britain.

The project is part of ongoing work between the Hull Afro Caribbean Association, Hull Museums and the University of Hull to increase the visibility of Hull's African Caribbean community.
